but small enough for the individual to run and care for. It will be constructed of the best
materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise. But it will be so low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one—and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God’s great open spaces.— Henry Ford, 1909
